I was working on an upcoming DIY project that involves cake. Really I could just end it all right there and it would be exciting in and of itself, but since I’m the kinda girl that plays nice, I thought I’d share the recipe with you. You can thank me later after you’ve had about three slices…
Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttermilk Cake
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
6 Tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tbsp melted butter
6 Tbsp buttermilk
1 egg white
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12 count muffin pan with liners. In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.
In a bowl of an electric mixer mix together the cocoa powder and 3 tbsp of hot water until a thick paste forms. Add buttermilk, butter, egg and egg white making sure to scrape down half way through. Add the flour mixture and mix until smooth. Bake for 20 minutes.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 pkg cream cheese, 8 oz
1 1/2 c powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Beat the cream cheese until fluffy and then slowly mix in the powdered sugar and vanilla.
Isn’t this a pretty sweet cake stand pattern? I’ll show you how to make it this week! ;)
